Adventure Tour Operators Association Of India

(ATOAI)

The Adventure Tour Operators Association of India (ATOAI) was conceptualized by seven dynamic founder members from the adventure travel trade, who envisioned ATOAI to be a strong support group that led to both group and individual profits by establishing adventure as one of the main tourist attractions to India. The association was founded with an aim to create awareness about the immense potential for adventure tourism in India and to harness this potential in a safe, sensitive and environment-friendly manner. The association has all along been working for the promotion of adventure tourism in India and to create awareness overseas about the potential of adventure tourism in India.

 

India is one of the very few countries in the world that boasts natural and cultural attractions so diverse and complex, which promises ample opportunities to explore every kind of landscape imaginable. From the eternal snow-clad peaks of the Himalayas to meandering rivers and gushing waterfalls, dense forests rich in wildlife, beautiful valleys, long coastlines and magical moonscapes, vast deserts of the west, to the ancient traditions and festivities of its colourful culture, offering unique adventures to all travellers.

 

ATOAI today is a strong body of over 500 adventure travel professionals who are not only passionate adventurers themselves but also promote adventure tourism with the same passion.

The association has the noble objectives at heart to promote national integration, international welfare and goodwill, to take all steps which may be necessary for promoting, encouraging and assisting in the development of Adventure Tourism throughout the country and to take initiative to secure the welfare of the Adventure Tourism Trade, to encourage and promote interaction within the adventure tour operators fraternity and with other travel agents on all subjects involving their common good and benefit, to promote equal opportunity for all visitors to enjoy the adventure tourism and travel facilities without distinction of race, colour, creed or nationality, to set up and maintain high ethical mores in the industry and to encourage and motivate the young population to get involved in the healthy adventure activities utilizing their energy in much desired direction of finding solution to difficult situations and roadblocks in constructive and determined manner.
